The Faculty of Technology, University of Ibadan became a full-fledged Faculty in 1975. However, it was established in 1971, by the Canadian International Development Agency, as an Institute of Applied Science and Technology, under the Faculty of Science. It started then with a Department of Petroleum Engineering in 1971 and by 1972 a second department called Agricultural and Forestry Engineering was added. In 1973 Department of Food Technology was added and by 1975 when it became a Faculty there were four programmes being run in it. Today it has grown to seven departments with eight programmes.
